Tiberias & The Sea of Galilee

We left Nazareth and made our way to another beautiful area in Israel – the Sea of Galilee region.

The sea is really a lake, and turned out to be smaller than I imagined, but had more of an impact on me than I anticipated. This is another region that I could spend more time exploring…at my own pace.

We arrived late in the day and visited the Church of the Apostles, which I will show in a later post. For now, I am just posting the 1st evening, that included a nighttime boat ride on the Sea of Galilee and some beautiful views of the sea and Tiberias, the city where our hotel was located.

From Wikipedia: Tiberias is an Israeli city on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee. Its Old City holds important Jewish and Christian pilgrimage sites including the Tomb of Maimonides and Abulafia (Etz Chaim) Synagogue. The waterfront features the restaurant-lined Yigal Allon Promenade, a marina and a fish market. South of the city, Hamat Tiberias National Park is home to famed mineral hot springs dating to antiquity.
